The Praça da República Fountain

Viana do Castelo
Description
The fountain was erected, or at least concluded, in 1559, it is a fine work of the master mason João Lopes “o velho” (“the old man”), the same that some years before done the Caminha fountain and, very proba - bly, some of the similar fountains that one can see in Galician cities such as Pontevedra. It was, for several centuries, the source of drinkable water supplying point for the Viana inhabitants and, due to its monu - mentality and its localisation, one of the urban points of reference of the borough.
